Just got my 11-15 to 12-15 check from the G.C. I am working for and there was 2450.00 held for a labor back charge. No itemization, no explanation, nothing. There was one day where I had a laborer call out sick and they were going to send a guy home, I offered to pay him to rake and run a plate compactor, but it was for 5 hours. That is an expensive laborer. I asked for an itemized invoice, and will call the owner on Monday. I am wondering if I should call the lawyer first, they have no cause to back charge me for that amount, I can see a couple three hundred dollars for the one day but that is it. Any thoughts? I have all my materials and labor covered at this point, but don't really want to go to court. I should have listened to my buddy about these guys, but needed the work at the time, and his opinion can be somewhat biased depending on mood.
